It seems that kids who take ADHD meds do not get therapy according to this study that assessed 1,500 counties across the country. The study also showed that in locations with more therapists, the amount of kids who received psychotherapy was higher. And other studies have shown that kids who receive therapy do better in the long run. As I type this, I realize that some of the kiddos I know in Utah who take meds do not receive therapy. Take your child or adolescent to therapy and get them meds and they will learn the skills they need to manage the behavior.
